I have a set of rims that were sprayed a few days ago, There are a few drips so I would like to wet sand them and spray them again. Do I need to prime them first. The paint is enamel.

Not in my opinion, you don't. It is common practice to lay down a finish coat of paint, allow it to dry thoroughly and then block sand the item. Back in the early days of hot rodding and custom cars, guys used to brag about having 40 coats of Candy Apple paint on their ride.

Jon, dont get too picky on making those wheels look perfect. You WILL end up scratching them up or putting nicks on them as you use your tractor. I spent 8 hours making my wheels looks perfect and the othe rnight I was digging ice and snow out of them with a plastic scrapper.

If you are hell bent on sanding them down again then just use some 400 of higher to get the runs down and then go over the rest of the wheels lightly with the same grit.
